Reschedule of MIPIM 2020 provides opportunity to donate
With several high-profile industry events, including this year’s MIPIM, being rescheduled as a precautionary measure to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to make a donation, matching the money we would have spent attending the rescheduled events, to Durrell’s Atlantic Forest project in Brazil.
As part of our Group commitment to environmental sustainability, the donation supports the project which links small patches of rainforest by planting tree corridors to connect the Morro do Diabo State Park to isolated forest fragments to the north. This will give threatened populations of black lion tamarin, puma, jaguar, and ocelot a chance to thrive again, as well as neutralising approximately 2,500 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. This extraordinarily lush rainforest, which extends both along the Atlantic coast and inland into southern Brazil, is home to many species of animals and plants that are found nowhere else on Earth.

If you were attending MIPIM and wanted to meet with a member of the team, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Simon Todd, Dominic de Mariveles, Scott McClure, Will Turner, Stephanie Workman and James Milner.
